Lebron James Headlines DFS Slate: Thursday 30th July

The NBA is back!

Lebron James and the Los Angeles Lakers headline a 2-game opening night for the NBA restart. Jrue Holiday and Brandon Ingram look to take on Donovan Mitchell and Rudy Gobert as they try to clinch the 8th seed in the west.

Tim and James have done the analysis and picked their team to take down the big money tomorrow!

PG: Lebron James $10,700

King James needs no explanation, PG market is weak tomorrow and Lebron shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. Hop on.

SG: JJ Redick $3,600

Cheap shooting guard option with high upside, JJ Redick is an elite shooter who can heat up very quickly. Almost the glue guy to this team, JJ redick should 5 times his value very easily tomorrow.

SF: Niccolo Melli $4,000

Big risk option. We’re expecting New Orleans V Utah to be a high scoring affair so take Niccolo on trust that he can grab some extra boards and hit some threes.

PF: Brandon Ingram $8,300

Averaging 25 points, 5 boards and a couple of assists pre-Zion. Brandon Ingram is going to be matched up on Joe ingles and will take full advantage of a smaller and slower player.

C: Ivica Zubac $4,500

No Montrezl Harrel and limited other Clippers options means Zubac by default should pick up a few extra points. Unless you’re willing to pay for an upgrade and get Rudy Gobert priced at $7,300 Zubac is your man.

G: Reggie Jackson $4,600

We’ve fallen into this trap many times before, but, Reggie Jackson needs to facilitate the second unit tomorrow. With no Lou Williams or Pat Beverly the burden of the guard rotation will rely on Reggie Jackson so we’re happy to take the risk on him.

F: Joe Ingles $5,700

No Bojan Bodganovic and a great extra facilitator for the Jazz, Joe Ingles will provive 3s, assists and loads of trash talk. Load up and strap in.

UTIL: Jrue Holiday $8,600

Jrue Holiday was averaging almost 30 points and 10 assists in his last few games before the NBA was postponed. Is loving being a secondary playmaker and being able to shoot 6 seconds within the shot clock. Lots of points expected from Jrue Holiday here.
